Dutch term or phrase: verplichtingen verzwaren
Sorry, a second one:
Indien een wijziging van de statuten tot gevolg heeft dat aansprakelijkheid van de leden voor de verbintenissen van de coöperatie intreedt, dan wel zodanige aansprakelijkheid wordt verhoogd of de verplichtingen van de leden tegenover de coöperatie worden verzwaard, kan een lid de toepasselijkheid van die wijziging voor hem niet ontgaan door het lidmaatschap op te zeggen.

Again, I cannot think of a proper translation of "verzwaring van verplichtingen" in this context.
Many thanks for any suggestions.

'Membership ends immediately:

c. within one month after a member has been informed of a decision to transform the Association into another legal form or into a fusion.'

'Consent of Shareholders

In certain, rather rare, cases the normal qualified majority of two thirds of the votes is not sufficient for an amendment of the articles of association. Generally such a situation takes place when the rights of a shareholder based on the shareholding are reduced or the obligations are increased by means of the amendment. In this case, the consent of certain or all the shareholders of the company...'
